Next month Switzerland’s iconic air display team, known as the Patrouille Suisse, will take to the skies above the mountains of Fliegerschiessen Axalp in the canton of Bern.
Founded in 1964, the Patrouille Suisse has featured as the support act at concerts by the Rolling Stones and Madonna.
This year’s Axalp Alpine aerobatics display, featuring six F-5E Tiger II fighter jets, takes place on Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 October 2018.
The 360 degree video above shows the Patrouille Suisse performing earlier this month above Zurich airport, flying at speeds over 800 km/h.
The Axalp event runs from 2:00 pm until 3:30 pm on both days and is open to the public.
